Default Need ideas for quilting this!!

This is a baby quilt for a great-niece - it ends with the pink border. I need ideas for quilting it on my domestic machine! I'd like to to do something a little more detailed that stippling or loops & swirls.

How about a flower with echoing in the center squares and maybe a leafy vine on the borders. The rest I don't know what to suggest.

No ideas, I am fairly new at quilting, but wanted to say I love the quilt!

I agree with tezell0801.... I'm too new at this to advise, but I love the quilt. I especially love how the white squares, straight and diagonally, really help the quilt pop! Great job!

I often do arcs on the squares, rectangles or what have you. You can usually find a method that makes it continuous so you don't have to stop and start so often. Just make an arc on each side of the seam. It makes a pretty design on the back as well. Like joyce888 suggested...maybe a flower in each center.

Pretty top! I think I might get the tear away star block papers in continuous designs to fit in the blocks. I would then look for a border star pattern for the border.

Great quilt. I hate deciding what to quilt. Wouldn't life be easier if quilting patterns came with a giant stencil to lay on the top for the quilting?
